(Cl. 40-125) The present invention relates to an illumi- to chipvan'd‘sharp'corners ~are-thercfore`objecnated advertising device preferably adapted for tionable. use with com controlled Scales, of the new device are receivable Within this ccn _The primary object cf the invention is the pron 5 vision of an advertising device adapted to be attached to the back of scales and positioned in Such a marmel- that the advertising matcrial ap- pearing thereon will be readily noticeable to the user of the scales, 10 A further object of the invention is to provide an advertising device including a frame for use in conjunction with a casing of essentially rec- tangular outline and having substantially ver_ tically positioned grooves formed in edge portions 3è) thel‘gof, Such as the Conven‘âiona] of scales Casinâ sal-_d frame having d pan. of depending legs or supports extending therefrom, receivable in said grooves and disposed ¿n thc same plane but at a very small angle more than a right angle 20 relative to the body of the fram@ so that the legs are spaced further apart at their distal than at their proximal ends, thereby facilitating attaehmcm cf thc frame tc thc casing by p0si_ tioning said legs in said grooved casing edge p,0r_ 25 tions. The invention will be fully and comprehensively understood from a consideration of the following detailed description when read in connection with the accompanying drawing which forms part 30 of the application. The legs of the frame forming a part Cel/ed POrtîOn and attached thereto as illus trated in Fig 2 0f the drawing. 5 Referring t0 Fig 3, it Will be Seen that the de- A vice includes a substantially rectangular' frame e having integral therewith the depending legs or supports l!) and il, said legs being substan tially triangular in cross-sectional outline and 10 disposed in the seme Plane but et e Very smell tingle more than e right angle relative t0 the frame’ es Clearly illustrated’ whereby the legs are spaced further apart et their distal than dt their proximal ends, thereby attach- 15 ment of the frame to the casing by positioning said legs in Seid grOOVed Casing edge lGOrtíOnS 3. hereinbefore referred to. Mounted within the frame 9 is e» transparent glass Panel l2 and e backing strip I3, preferably provided with letters 20 or other advertising matter adapted to be mount ed thereon- A rear panel le is removably et tached to the frame 9, and positioned between said panel and the backing strip I3 is a packing strip l5, the rear panel being attached by screws 25 er the like le which extend into the frame 9 and are r eedïly remnveble therefrem, aS illustrated in Flg- 4 0f the d_retWlrlg- _ _ _ ~ The advertising device herein disclosed may be illuminated in any desired manner.

Current is sup plied te the neon tube thru the Wire l@ extending from the rear of the frame, which Wire may be attached to a conveniently located outlet fixture. When attaching the device to the scales, the legs 45 _ _ casing is indicar-,cd generally by the numeral 5 and includes a coin slot 6 and Weight-indicating diei 1 which rotates upon the deposit or a com te I0 and H are forced into the concaved portion 8 0n the rear 51de _0f the SCele- _Fastening members 20 Serve te fetale the less Withln the grooves e indicate the correct Weight of the user.

What is claimed as new is: 'I‘he cylindri cal extensions indicated by the numeral 20' per Ul mits counter boring at these points without mate rially weakening the leg structure. v By this man ner, the device is firmly attached to the scales and the advertising matter appearing within the frame and the means for causing illumination thereof are securely protected. The frame may be made up of various designs so as to render the same more attractive to the individual scale to which it is to be attached. rI'he material for forming the frame and depending legs may be the same as that used in the manufacture of scales or may be of metal or other suitable material. It is to be understood that this improvement is capable of extended application and is not con ñned to the exact showing of the drawing nor to the precise construction described and, therefore, such changes and modifications may be made nor exceed the scope thereof as expressed in the The combination with a scales casing having 5 substantially vertically positioned grooves formed therein- in edge portions thereof, said grooves being in the same plane but disposed relative to each other in another than parallel relationship, of a display panel adapted to being superimposed 10 upon said casing and including a pair of depend ing leg-like members forming a counter-part of said grooves and adapted to being received there , in, said legs being disposed in the same plane but at a very small angle greater than a right angle 15 relative to said panel and spaced further apart at their distal than at their proximal ends, whereby said panel is firmly held in position due at least in part to said spacing of said legs. 20 NATHAN RAIZNER.
